Gal Gadots Celeb-packed Imagine Cover Spawns Outrage: Just call her Blunder Woman, snarks the New York Post. Gal Gadots attempt to cheer up coronavirus isolationists with a celeb-studded cover of John Lennons Imagine backfired.. Were all in this together, says the Wonder Woman star, 34, at the start of the viral video. The three-minute clip then cuts to a montage of Gadot, Mark Ruffalo, Will Ferrell and other Hollywood elites singing the lyrics of the late Beatle stars opus, which envisions a world without strife.
The actress Gal Gadot, on her sixth day of precautionary coronavirus self-isolation, orchestrated a line-for-line baton pass of John Lennons Imagine In this clusterclump of hyperfamous people with five seconds too much time on their hands, however, Imagine may have met its match It is proof that even if no one meets up in person, horribleness can spread. (The New York Times.)
And on, and on, go the Gadot-bashings across the political spectrum of both mainstream and social media. Its a weird consensus of ridicule for a relatively innocent blooper.
I say relatively innocent when compared to this:
Gal Gadot is on board to produce and possibly star in a movie based on Peter Kornbluhs Politico article My Dearest Fidel: An ABC Journalists Secret Liaison With Fidel Castro. When I first read Peters (Kornbluhs) article, I was entranced by his thrilling account of a complicated, fascinating woman(Castro and Che Guevara groupie Lisa Howard) in the midst of a high-stakes, real-life drama, Gadot said. I knew immediately that I had to be involved creatively with telling (Castro and Che groupie) Lisa Howards story, and am thrilled to be producing this film with Sue.
In brief, this feminist and former Miss Israel will co-produce and star in a movie-glorification of the terror-sponsor and diehard Israel enemy who is also the jailer and torturer of the most and longest-suffering female political prisoners in the modern history of the Western Hemisphere. In brief, Gal Gadot will glorify a mass-murderer who sent tanks and troops to help erase her homeland from the map and whose lifelong craving was to nuke the country and people who made her a star and a millionaire.
Apparently this offends nobody.
The Fuhrers swastika is today Israels banner!(Fidel Castro, June 2010.)
Fidel Castros habitual references to Israel as Fascist!Nazi! and Genocidal! are the least of Blunder Womans oversights. The terror-sponsoring, mass-murderer also put his (stolen) money where his mouth was: sending tanks and troops to Syria during the Yom Kippur war attempting to erase Israel! His Stalinist regime also sponsored the famous UN resolution equating Zionsim with Racism! and drove out 90 per cent of Cubas Jewish population.
In fact, what Czar Nicholas failed to accomplish with 20 years of pogroms, My Dearest Fidel pulled off in three years of his Stalinist rule. He drove out a higher percentage of Jews from Cuba than Czar Nicholas drove from Russian and even Hafez Assad drove out of Syria. Yet Miss Israel seems as charmed by him as was Lisa Howardwho also had the hots for Fidels sidekick Che Guevara.
In fact, in December 1964 Lisa Howard (the fascinating woman! Gal Gadot will presumably play very sympathetically) threw a celebrity-studded party in her Manhattan bungalow in honor of Che Guevara who was addressing the UN that week. Executions?! Che Guevara exclaimed to the claps and cheers of that august international body. Certainly we execute!and we will continue executing as long as necessary!...the U.S. is a carnivorous animal feeding on the helpless! More claps and cheers greeted Che Guevarafollowed by a simply fab party thrown by Lisa Howard, Gal Gadots new heroine.
By the way, in between signing autographs for Manhattans glitterati at Lisa Howards place during that trip Che Guevara was also plotting with the Black Liberation Front to blow up the Statue of Liberty. Think of the drama this side-plot would add to Gadots movie!
I offer this sure-fire nail-biter/subplot on the part of Howards heartthrob to Gal Gadots screenwriters on the house. Dont mention it, Ms. Gadot! Happy to help with your project! Thorough documentation for this terror-plot provided here.
Politico writer Peter Kornbluh, by the way, (who entranced Gal Gadot with his Politico article) is among the Castro-regimes most active (but unregistered) U.S. agent/lobbyists. Kornbluhs links to the terror-sponsoring Castro regime are so intimate that the Stalinist regimes KGB-tutored secret police use Kornbluh as a celebrity prop in the ransom notes for their hostages.
Think I jest?
Well, remember when Castro grabbed Alan Gross as a U.S. hostage to blackmail Obama into releasing the Castro terrorist/spies convicted of (among other crimes) conspiracy to murder U.S. citizens?
Oh, I know, I know, the Fake News Media and Castros propaganda ministry (but I repeat myself) refer to this as Obamas historic opening to Cuba! In fact it was a craven, sniveling (and typically Democrat) caving to blackmail by a terror-sponsoring, hostage-taking regime.
And why did Castro choose a Jewish American hostage (Alan Gross)? Perhaps this provides a clue:
The control that Israel has over the United States is enormous, Fidel Castro said.
And heres what the Simon Weisenthal Centers Rabbi Abraham Cooper heard from a Castro official while visiting hostage Alan Gross in his Havana prison cell: "Everyone knows that the Jews have a lot of clout in Washington.
At any rate, heres a picture (i.e.ransom-note) taken by KGB-mentored Cuban apparatchiks of Alan Gross in captivity featuring Peter Kornbluh. Youve got to admit thats quite an honor!
Two years ago a ceremony was held at the Cuban embassy in Washington D.C. in honor, homage and tribute to the mass-murdering, terror-sponsoring dictator Fidel Castro. This strikes me as perfectly proper for Cuban diplomats.
But what should you make of U.S. scholars billed as impartial gleefully offering honor, homage and tribute to the mass-murdering, terror-sponsor who craved to nuke their homeland? Wouldnt this seem to make a sorry joke of their impartial scholarship and expertise? When featuring an article by such a person shouldnt Politico provide its readers with a term a tad more revelatory of his agenda than mere scholar?
Well, heres a picture of that celebration of honor, homage and tribute to Fidel Castro featuring, Gal Gadots entrancer Peter Kornbluh among other U.S. Scholars.
Oh, and if the term heartthrob for Fidel and Che in relation to Lisa Howard strikes some of my amigos as unnecessarily hyperbolic, I invite them (especially the ladies who are much better than men in these matters) to study Lisa Howards face in these pictures of her with Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. Scroll down a bit and youll find that Ann Margaret never gazed upon Conrad Birdie more adoringly than (early feminist) Lisa Howard gazed upon Che Guevara and Fidel Castro, the jailers and torturers of the longest-suffering women political prisoners in the modern history of the Western Hemisphere.
Embodiment of the clueless becoming even more clueless or ignorance is bliss.
Imagine is an amazing song and serious earworm. I love it. I can’t STAND 75% of the lyrics though.
Lisa Howard was an American journalist, writer, and television news anchor who previously had a career as an off-Broadway theater and soap opera actress. In the early 1960s, she became ABC News's first woman reporter, and was the first woman to have her own national network television news show.
Born: Dorothy Jean Guggenheim, her family was Jewish, April 24, 1926, Cambridge, Ohio, U.S.
Died: July 04, 1965, East Hampton, Long Island, New York, U.S.
Cause of death: Barbiturate overdose
I never thought that “Imagine” was one of Lennon’s better songs, to be perfectly honest.
On the other hand, take the lyrics for “Revolution”. I took that one as a good old fashioned slap at the Commies and it rocked.
all these celebrities are now mouthing off about the corona virus..yet one is glaringly missing...Michael Moore...hmm, you dont think that...ahh, n/m
Reminds me of Susan Hayward
I’m sure this flick will be a fave with Justine who wept when Fidel cashed his chips in.
Imagine is slow. I suppose one could slow dance to it but I doubt it would’ve rated high on American Bandstand. :)
Its a horrible song. They deserve every bit of criticism for singing that leftist nonsense during this pandemic.
The problem was that history was unkind to Karl's predictions. Democratic reform socialism got traction in the western democracies -- and the Marxists always hated the democratic socialists as much as, or more than, they hated the capitalists. Then came WWI, and to the utter shock of the Marxists, the European working classes turned out to be patriots. They marched off to war, not revolution. Karl's theory was a shambles on all fronts. Then by freakish chance -- and considerable German intervention intended to knock Russia out of the war -- Lenin imposed a Marxist dictatorship by force, and the theoreticians went to work squaring the Soviet police state with Karl's fantasies. That was always a shabby fraud, but academic leftists took it seriously, and still do.
The problem was that Marxist socialism had been spread, not by the inevitable unfolding of iron historical and economic laws, but at the point of the bayonet, first in Russia, then across Eastern Europe, and then China. That's not the way history was supposed to work, and it was a problem for a movement that wanted to believe communism would be liberating. Gulags and Berlin Walls were bad optics, and only morally stunted academics were willing to overlook them. Then came Castro, at the head of an apparently indigenous revolution from below, with the Red Army nowhere in sight.
For academic Marxists, Castro was a figure of redemption. Marxists had grown sick of defending the gulag, but since that was all they had, they had either to soldier on or break with the party. (The honest ones broke with the party.) Now they had an actual communist revolution! The whole Marxist left was orgasmic. Maybe Karl had gotten the details wrong and the confident timelines had been reduced to rubble, but history was grinding in the right direction after all. Ecstasy!
The enthusiasm for Castro was orgasmic, enough to perhaps attract the attention of a filmmaker politically independent enough to make sport of the farce. The Castro story could be usefully told as a failed romance, a love story in which the object of desire turns out to be a psychotic killer. Hollywood knows how to tell this story. It's a movie that should be made.
I wonder if Gal Gadot has a glimmer of historical understanding. Someone needs to sit down with her soon.
If Adam Smith had written Imagine
Imagine no established churches
It’s easy if you try
No inquisition of dissenters
Heretics not made to fry
Imagine all the people
Enjoying freedom of religion
Imagine no right of conquest
It isn’t hard to do
No initiation of war
And no enslaving the defeated too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
Imagine no abject poverty
I wonder if you can
No mass starvation or high rates of infant mortality
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Joined in specialization and trade
You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one ...
and as many at the same time
True, bashes Mao nicely.
And to think that Fidel wanted nuclear war, right away. He was pissed at Khruschev for not launching ASAP
“Imagine” is the Communist Star Spangled Banner....I hate it and John Lennon.....
“Imagine” is the Communist Manifesto set to music.
Just another dead groupie junkie. Only in Hollywood can people who stood for nothing be held up for adoration.
Imagine is the Communist Star Spangled Banner....I hate it and John Lennon.....
When I listen to the song, I cringe. It’s a battle-cry for degenerates everywhere.
